My Boys Are Driving Me Up A Wall.........


The neighbor friends know were moving, so I promised to have a boys day and take them somewhere fun and then have a girls day too before summer ended.
So I took the boys to Hangar 18.

It was such a good workout and a great way to climb away some stress!!!

Landen found his new favorite sport!

I think this child suffers from ADDDDDDDDDD+ and to let him climb away is just the right medicine.

I also like the fact that I can harness him up and he can't run away!

Look at that stud!

After all that climbing the boys wanted double double hamburgers!

We had a great day and these two buddies made great memories!

Now it's girl day!!!

I was just out and about and I was thinking about you. It struck me that you had not blogged in a few days and I was worrying about you. I got back in, sat down to rock the baby, and was just about to send you a message when I noticed your post. Glad you got a chance to de-stress some!!

I have a question for you, also. I am gonna post it here rather than email because I was thinking maybe someone else might have the same question. So here it goes.... I realize you are all still on your summer break, but during the "school year" how do you handle school. I am GREAT need of some advice and guideance. You seem to be on the go a lot and I am wondering if you have a set schedule for each day and do you go by it x-percent of the time or what. I want my kids to be educated, but I feel we are at home too much and when we are out I feel I am "skipping" school. Can you shed some light for me on how to keep the balance. How much time to you all spend reading, worksheets, etc.? Do you spend more time on hands-on exploration? I thought I had it all figured out and then, this week I found myself holding a worksheet out to my daughter and bribing her to do it with watermelon.... yeah, it was then that I realized I was nuts. LOL! Today we played some cards... but not sure there was anything useful out of it and I truly don't think I made it fun for her... poor child. Anyway, if you are needing a blog topic to post about I would love to here your tips and all about your approach!!! ;)

Oh and I would be interested in the answer to Shannon's question too. I am just starting out in homeschooling and I would love to know how you do things.
